A month or so ago, I tried the PURE Chocolate Brownie Bar. I wrote a review here. This time I tried the the Cherry Cashew version. I was super impressed!! I got a picture of the wrapper this AM, but had eaten it yesterday on our trip back while it was still dark out, so no picture of the bar itself. The flavor & chunks in this bar are amazing! I like these much better than the Cherry Pie Lara Bars. Now, I am not dissing my Lara Bars, because they do hold a special place in my heart (especially that chocolate coffee flavor & the peanut butter cookie, too).
The Cherry Cashew bar is organic,raw, vegan, has 1.5 servings of fruit, omega-3s, 4 grams of fiber & 6 grams of protein per bar. What a bang for your buck (or $2, depending on where you get them)!! I like to keep these on hand for emergency situations……no safe food or healthy choices (while Frito’s & Snicker’s are both gluten-free, they don’t qualify as healthy choices for emergency snacks or meal replacements). Obviously this bar would not hold me over for more than 2-3 hours, but it will do the trick in a pinch. What I did yesterday was I ate a banana at 5:30 AM or so, then I opened the bar around 7:30 or so and then did lunch around 11:30 AM. I could have probably eaten lunch sooner, but being on the road for 12 hours and having to find a place to stop & use the restroom didn’t allow for it.
